WB 2-1: Original Poem (& Analysis)
- Write an original poem -- something that you are willing to revise.
- Include a brief analysis that demonstrates your ability to apply concepts you have learned from Hamilton, the workbooks, and our study of assigned readings.
I think it's unlikely that you'll be able to get 290 words of good analysis out of a 10-word poem, and if you submit a 290-word poem, I doubt a 10-word analysis will do it justice.
This assignment isn't meant to pass judgment on your poetic talent; rather, I want to see evidence that you know what kinds of effects poems can achieve, that you can set out to reach a specific effect, and that you can state a case for how effectively your poem meets that effect. (I will share with you a poem I wrote that was an utter failure. You can tell me whether you think it's worth revising at all.)
